Finding A High Quality Author

By Crystal Powers

Determining just who can do the work is one of the most difficult tasks for the person who is in need of the services of a high quality author. Being capable is one thing, being available to do the work is another thing.

As the hiring party, there are several things that you can do to ensure that you find a capable and available author.

Find out if the author has experience. Also, find out if he or she will be able to write on the proposed topic. Samples of his or her work readily available for your perusal is what a good author will have. Do not assume that all of the author's work is posted online; sometimes "we" authors hold our best work back from the public due to fears of piracy or because of third party confidentiality.

If the author is to cover a topic outside of their areas of expertise are you willing to pay extra for the research the author may need to do in order to accomplish the task?

Is the author presently busy with other assignments or is he or she available to work on your project now? Just how tight is your deadline? Is your schedule not flexible or can you work with the author's schedule? If there is no agreement that can be made to do the current project, would you consider using the same author at a future date for a different project?

Have you found out if the author has references? Do you thing you can the phone number and the name of the person and contact them to ask them about their work?

Try to determine how much the author expects to be paid. Perhaps the author has a list of his or her pricing structure on their website. Can you get an ironclad estimate? What payment methods are they expecting.

Do you want the author to use his or her name and submit the articles to article directories for links back to your site or is the author writing as a ghostwriter?

Any Author may prefer to discuss over the telephone details of what the hiring party wants, what they can do for this person, and attempt to get a better feel for the job.
